Is Starfire the most upbeat superhero in existence? Before you answer that question, take a look at the sneak peek from this weekend's New Teen Titans short from Cartoon Network's DC Nation block, "Blackfire's Babysitter." It just might change your answer if you were thinking of saying "no."In tomorrow's New Teen Titans minisode, Starfire volunteers to babysit her sister B
The New Teen Titans are doing the time warp again during this week's DC Nation block on Cartoon Network, with the 1960s-obsessed Mad Mod (and his TARDIS-like machine) giving the 2012 teen superheroes a righteous 1990s makeover. Yes, including a mullet or two, and yes, we have a clip under th
I know it's not the wisest thing to forsake healthy eating when you travel, but I totally had a huge chocolate chip cookie and similarly ginormous coffee for breakfast today to celebrate ComicsAlliance's visit to Seattle for Emerald City ComiCon
Attention, everyone with fond memories of watching Static Shock on Saturday mornings: You might find yourself experiencing deja vu in upcoming months, if a tease about the second season of Cartoon Network's Young Justice series turns out to mean what many fans and commentators have suggested: that Static may be joining the animated sidekick team.During an interview with the World Finest blog about gett
I was extremely sad to read the news this morning that veteran comic book artist Eduardo Barreto has passed away at only 57-years-old. It's doubtlessly true that I speak for many comics art aficionados when I say that his work will be sorely missed and always cherished. While not the k
Miguel Jose Barragan, an openly gay superpowered teen from Mexico is joining DC Comics' flagship team of teenage heroes. As announced online by artist Brett Booth, the hero known as Bunker will debut in November's Teen Titans #3. Bunker will apparently come from an accepting background that's contributed to a slightly
Need some more color in your life? Have a look at the brilliant superhero tributes in Karen Zachary Wang's work. Her figures are long and slender in the spirit of artists such as Michael Turner and Mark Silvestri, but she draws Nightwing and Batgirl with a softness that feels much more like Phil Noto
DC's second panel of Comic-Con 2011, "DC: The New 52," was the first panel of the convention where DC took questions about its September relaunch.

This year, the Eisners are honoring the legendary Bob Haney with the 2011 Bill Finger Memorial Award for Excellence in Comics Writing, and if you ask me, that's long overdue. In a career that spanned five decades, Haney's contributions to the DC Universe included co-creating the Teen Titans, Metamorpho and Eclipso and a long run as the writer of The Brave and the Bold, working with artists like Neal Adams and the incredible Jim Aparo.
And he also wrote some of the craziest comic books I have ever read, like the time Batman sold his soul to the devil, the the time they retconned the JFK assassination with shapeshifters, and the time the Atom resurrected a man from the dead by doing gymnastics on his cerebellum.Haney didn't just embrace the wild, anything-goes attitude of the Bronze Age, he strapped a jetpack on it and rocketed it to a headquarters at the center of the sun. He set the gold standard for an entire era of DC comics, writing stories in which no premise was too insane to make a grand adventure and no character was off-limits for a team-up with Batman. So with the award being officially handed down next month, ComicsAlliance has decided to show you just why he's so great with a look at Bob Haney's Craziest Stories!
